    1. WG might have overlooked this ” small detail ” of reload speed, when they changed the gun to a 32 pdr.

      They have overlooked such details more often in the past when rebalancing tanks. I wouldn’t be surprised if that ” overlooked small detail ” will come to the live game as WG deals in making new fotm (flavor of the month) content (stick and carrot mechanics)

  1. This is all good stuff but being a WoT player means never being happy with anything WG changes so I’d like to register a hope that the removed 20-pdr guns will find their way to the Black Prince.

  2. I don’t mind the armor buffs to the Conqueror, but I don’t think it needs the spaced armor around the turret nor the nerf to the gun handling.

    Leave the spaced armor to the “Super Conqueror” at tier 10 but even that needs to have the FVs turret side armor and gun handling.

    The changes on these two tanks sort of ruin British top tier HT selling point of accurate, rapid firing 120mm guns.

    1. actually, just noticed the gun stats were significantly better then the last change notes. Not as good as the current but the trade off for improved armor on the Conqueror is significantly better. I’m happy with this but still think they should remove the spaced armor off the tier 9.

      That 32pdr has gotten more brutal though for some reason…

  3. I stopped at the Centurion, so maybe I’m missing something, but why remove the Type A and Type B barrels completely? Just leave them available for players to make grinding easier…seems a stupid move to remove them

    1. They did make the grind easier… You get the top gun (32pdr) on the cearn right away now instead of having to grind through the 17pdr, type A, and type B.

  4. Are there pictures available on the internet for the new Centurion AX turret? Thx

  5. I dunno I kind of liked the idea of the 20-pounder on the Cearn. It desperately needed a DPM buff, but if it got one it would have been a good fit with the lowish alpha-high DPM ethos of a lot of the British tanks.

  6. I’ve played the top tier british heavies on the account of a friend. I feel like the conqueror is an above average tier 9 HT, but is not close to being OP. The Caernarvon is annoying just for the alpha and the armour, but if it is played like a slower medium it does the job. Now it will be just a non-premium OP tier 8, which (if it makes it to the live server with these stats) will make WG either buff all tier 8 vehicles’ DPMs or only premium tanks. Imagine a defender with 2.5k base DPM or Skorpion G with 3k

  7. Well, I guess I’m gonna start grinding if this line gets buffed. Not gonna bother grinding it now, even if I get a FV215B for free. I still wonder what they are going to do with the Churchills and Black Prince though. All the rebalances on supertest and common test are only about tier 8/9/10, which increases the gap between tier 6/7 and 8.
